The phone line does two jobs. Voice phone which is what it was originally used for and ADSL modem which works at a high audio frequency.
Somewhere between the phone socket and the modem should be a filter splitter. One part goes to the phone and the other to the router. Make sure you have that.
The modem will have a power light and several additional lights. Assuming the power light is on we are interested in two of them; The ADSL light and the Internet light. When you switch the modem on you should first see the power light flash then go solid. Then the ADSL light will flash and then this should go solid. If this light does not come on then you have not plugged the phone wire in properly. If this light just keeps flashing slowly then the modem can't see an ADSL signal on the phone line. If you have a spare router you could try it and see if the ADSL light goes solid on that.
If the ADSL light is fine then the modem has locked onto the signal on the phone line, sync'ed. If not then this is the problem you must solve. Ask your ISP if service is set on your line.
The next light is the Internet light, this maybe a symbol like an i or a world. This light will begin flashing then go solid. It will flash with Internet traffic. This means you have Internet, as far as the modem is concerned. If this light does not stay on then your ADSL account name and password maybe wrong. You can correct this but that's a different question you need to ask.
Make sure that all of you connections on your modem are plugged in (you should see 4 green lights and one blinking yellow/amber light). If you only have one amber light, press the standby button again. If the modem still is not working, check to make sure that the coaxial cable from the wall is tightly (hand tight) screwed into both the wall and the back of the modem, unplug the power cord and wait about 30 seconds before plugging it back in. Give the modem time to boot up (about 2 minutes usally) and try to connect to the internet again.
You will have to be a bit more clear on which lights on which model of modem is flashing rapidly.
Usually, as long as the internet works, the flashing lights are there to show that the modem is functioning properly and is currently sending packets, transmitting data, etc.
take a wire and carefully touch it to the two attachment points of the copper ring on the left side while it is plugged in. I first froze my system for 15 min then thawed out and touched the wire as instructed and all works fine.
To open the box remove the clear soft contacts on the bottom, should be four. Using a small philips remove them and pull the box in two. Then fix according.
try shutting of your computer then shutting off the modem, the modems have batteries you might have to remove them theres usally a panel on the bottom, in the back you should have a wire for comcast cable and an ethernet chord telephone too if you have everything. also your modem could be broken, i had the same problem
--If the Power light is flashing red thanits definately problem with the Actiontec Router
--As you have checked with different power source, the possibility of bad power source is no more
--May be due to some voltage fluctuation the modem is gone bad.
